Rikishi is a WWE Hall of Famer, and he is also father of the Usos and Solo Sikoa. Rikishi has not made his presence known on WWE television, but he could want a piece of his sons’ action.

It was previously reported that Rikishi is going to be a part of the Usos’ upcoming storyline. There is talk of him getting a special referee role in a Jimmy vs Jey battle. That being said, there is a bit of controversy about that.

One company promoted Rikishi’s appearance with this rumor in tow. The promotional poster for the event said, “come meet Rikishi before he referees at Payback.” This got a bit of attention, especially after the report that WWE is about to bring him back.

Rikishi responded to this poster by saying, “wrong promoter mistake.” He also included an LOL emoji and an arrow pointing down. We can only hope that this indie company’s poster didn’t spoil a big WWE storyline.


We will keep our eye on this ongoing story. It would make sense to bring Rikishi into the mix for the Bloodline, especially with Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso fighting as they are.
